Green Bay's ownership is probably very happy where they're at, with such low overhead. Probably in the same boat as the Toledo Walleye's ownership, who are perfectly happy to be in the ECHL versus the AHL.
Just cause your an ECHL Franchise doesn't necessarily mean you have to be affiliated with an AHL and NHL team. The Las Vegas Wranglers aren't affiliated with anyone for an example.
